Notice

Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

lossyWAV can now run on POSIX systems natively

Hello.

I managed to compile and run lossyWAV natively on GNU/Linux.

The small code changes I made should all be C++11-compliant or POSIX-compliant.
So, lossyWAV should theoretically also build successfully in other POSIX environments.

WARNING: I have near-zero experience with C++ and the Windows API. So, I take no responsibility for the code changes I made.

The code changes are available here:

More like flossyWAV, amirite?

Nice work.
It's only audiophile if it's inconvenient.

Many thanks, 2012 - your time and effort is much appreciated.

Very glad that you got it to compile and run natively!

LossyWAV is available for Arch Linux. https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lossywav-git/


Cool.

If you add fftw to depends and use the fftw make target. You should get a slightly
faster binary (~6% faster for me with a Core 2 Due powered laptop).

And those changes in the PKGBUILD are already tested. Since I'm a longtime
Arch Linux user myself

All thanks should go to you and Tycho for making this possible.
